God’s voicemail was full so much that people prayed for him. It was how powerful it was to be surrounded by this love. He can do what he wants with that love and that strength. This support gave him a new life, new chances and new goals. Here at WWE the goals are to win titles and plant his flag. For him the only important thing is that he can get on the ring every night. If he can do it, he will use this global WWE platform to support people who need help like him. Reigns says we expect an update, are we going? The crowd sings “yes”. Reigns says he’s done more than fighting in defense, it’s a home run. He is so grateful and honored to announce that. The good news is that he is in remission! The crowd sings “yes”.
